AbstractABSTRACT: This proposal is to design an instrument that will detect and quantify volcanic ash hazards. A proof of concept model of the instrument will be constructed and tested. This instrument will measure overall density, particle size distribution and elemental composition. While the instrument in Phase 1 will not be certified to fly on a UAV, design elements will be incorporated for the goal of UAV integration in Phase 2. BENEFIT: This will benefit safety of air travel near volcanic hazards. Allow for reduced engine maintenance, and provide improvements to satellite based monitoring systems.
